My chest xray showed--right upper midzonal consolidation is seen with a fibrotic element. Is it TB scar? Could it cause lung cancer. Doctor please answer.

My chest xray showed--right upper midzonal consolidation is seen with a fibrotic element. Is it TB scar? Could it cause lung cancer. Doctor please answer.

Would not hurt to keep an eye on it, as TB can recur. Tb does not cause lung cancer, nor does scarring. If the scarring is from smoking however, that does cause cancer without doubt! If you do smoke, at your age you have time to heal if you quit. ...Read more
